john oliver last week tonight transcript

The problem is he has qualified immunity. John Oliver explains why greater oversight is needed, and how we can go about getting it. Then they had a great frolic.” And look, every excuse for slavery is shitty, but “we gave them sandwiches sometimes” has to be one of the shittiest. Children’s books can be charming and also racist. I know he looks like he just emerged from a vat of vaseline fully formed as a shiny haunted hate mannequin, but he’s actually from the garden state. You know, the problem with telling someone that they’re a predator is that it prime them to see the rest of the world as potential prey. That’s pretty upsetting coming from a doctor. “undeniably the best Greek export that doesn’t have fruit at the bottom.”. And now this. [Joy Behar] Thomas Jefferson, who didn’t — who didn’t free his slaves. Like, you know, they’re given $15,000 a year to the transgender coordinator for the City.”. A Georgia textbook from the ’50s claimed, “the master often had a barbecue or a picnic for his slaves. And his school really let him down there. And in high-profile cases, especially, they can be incentivized to settle for astonishing amounts. Take the century between the end of the civil war and the civil rights act, which is often glossed over but should probably be taught a lot more thoroughly. So if you’re gonna take somebody down, take down —. Bad textbook! We’re in the same shit now that we’re in back then. For instance, one case was thrown out because of the difference between unleashing a police dog to bite a motionless suspect in a bushy ravine and unleasing a police dog to bite a compliant suspect in a canal in the woods—which I totally get, those are two completely different kinds of outdoor holes. What’s gonna happen to them? John: Yeah. Just listen to a defense attorney explain one reason that it was gonna be difficult for Michael Brown‘s family to sue the Ferguson officer who killed him. Movies can be romantic and also racist. What do you mean, ‘everywhere’? Because all week long protesters have continued to fill the streets in all 50 states in the wake of the horrific murder of George Floyd by the police. Trump vs. Sunny disagrees. And this, sadly, won’t be the last time we see people find out the hard way how serious this is. John fucking Lewis would do that. For much of US history, law enforcement meant enforcing laws that were explicitly designed to subjugate black people. And it makes “Know Alabama” sound less like the title of that textbook and more like something you’d yell at it: “No, Alabama! Sport. And this is gonna take sustained pressure and attention over a long period of time, from all of us. Bush. [] Were they gonna hang them? And on top of all of that, we’ve made those bad choices even more dangerous in recent years by needlessly arming police to the fucking teeth. And just imagine what it would feel like to be a black kid in that classroom — or, if you don’t have to imagine, remember. Second, given the shockingly low number of rape cases that actually result in charges, much less convictions, I really wouldn’t be holding that up as proof that our current system is working well. John Oliver, Wanda Sykes, and Larry David teamed up to help fight reported bias in medical care on Sunday night’s Last Week Tonight. I honestly don’t know what’s more alarming there, his determination to train police officers to be predators, his air of casual impunity, or the fact they has a sign in his office that says “let me drop everything and work on your problem,” which is always the office decor choice of a grade-a asshole. Others were lazy, disobedient, and sometimes vicious.” I wonder what kind of slave I would have been. So if the union’s won’t act and the federal government won’t act, what else can you do as a civilian to get accountability if the police violated your rights? She was shocked three times with a stun gun for refusing to sign a speeding ticket. That’d be like a librarian writing “Unjust to Voldemort” on Harry Potter‘s one through seven or “Unjust to Whale” on Moby Dick or “Unjust to L. Ron Hubbard” on Leah Remini’s Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology. Yeah, thanks very much for that Congress. To distract himself from the pain of life, Austin throws a tea party for his old college friends – but the day is disrupted by a major political event. You broke the contract when we built our wealth again on our own by our bootstraps in Tulsa and you dropped bombs on us, when we built it in Rosewood and you came in and you slaughtered us. My favorite part is that, after he’s finished unloading on that police chief, he yields his time, realizes he still has a couple of second left, so unyield it and throws in a bonus “fuck you.”. We just asking us to do too much. And what’s notable there is not that Trump’s being racist — which is not remotely surprising. Because those kids grow up. And police unions can also oppose even the most basic common-sense reform. [Man in the crowd] What the fuck does that mean?!? Chief, Dallas Police] We’re asking cops to do too much in his country. Just look what happened a few weeks back, when the president, in the midst of nationwide black lives matter protests, announced plans to hold a rally in Tulsa on June 19th, a decision astonishingly tone-deaf for two key reasons. You broke the contract when you killed us in the streets and didn’t give a fuck. This is a group that a lot of people out there probably weren’t altogether familiar with a couple of years ago … but times are different. And of course, cops who went through this training could wind up on edge. But we were actually not going to focus on Trump tonight, nor are we—unlike some in cable news—going to dwell on the incidents of looting that occurred, except to say if you said the name Macy’s more than you’ve said the name Breonna Taylor this week, you can very much fuck off. They’re protesting excessive force by police, and the police just start pepper spraying them like it’s fucking sunscreen. King actually grew more outspoken about that issue in the years that followed. What does the predator do? And the fact the constitution is infused with racism does not mean it’s canceled. But it leaves a lot out. The dinosaurs died 65 million years ago, and you’d still be floored if someone only just told you about them. Here in Dallas we got a loose dog problem, let’s have a conversation which dogs. Courtesy of HBO Show More Show Less 2 … John: Yeah. Aired on August 2, 2020. The pandemic has thrown into high relief some of the longstanding issues surrounding working conditions in meatpacking facilities. Because black people don’t generally hang around with John C. Calhoun lookalikes who are obsessed with going back to the 1950s. It’s not going to serve any of us well. That is why many are advocating that we rethink police from the ground up. John: Wow. And it might be worth going through some of the history here, because it’s important to understand how deeply policing in this country is entangled with white supremacy. Meatpacking: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver - Transcript. I’m not saying that we shouldn’t still try them, but in many cases you’re contending with an entrenched police culture resistant to any effort to compel reform. Click on the highlights to read what others are saying. That document is a lot of things — genuinely revolutionary and the foundation of an improbably long-lived democracy — but it is also infused with and inextricably linked to slavery and a legacy of racial inequality. Our whole show is actually gonna be about one thing, and you probably know what, and you probably know why. And that is basically a campaign promise crafted by Lee Atwater and designed to win over this woman who’s probably dead now. And all of this coupled with the continued denial of economic and housing opportunities—not always particularly subtle, by the way—meant that by the summer of 1967 there were a series of high-profile uprisings against racial injustice across the United States. Thank you so much for watching. It’s not a youtuber who’s just now realizing it was wrong to do blackface for 14 years. And in response to those protests, which have been a stirring pushback against institutional racism and brutality, has been frankly sickening to see them met with this. Our main story tonight concerns history, a subject so fascinating, we’re sometimes willing to do crazy experiments like this: [CBS this Mornings] Scientists were able to mimic Nesyamun’s voice by recreating his mouth and vocal cords with a 3D printer. And it might not surprise you to see that someone was incredibly racist in the 1950s. 2019 Season 5. Here is a crazy story you might not know: in 1898, the multi-racial city government in Wilmington, North Carolina, became the target of the “only coup d’etat ever to take place on American soil,” in which a mob of up to 2,000 armed white men killed at least 60 black residents and replaced the city’s aldermen with white supremacists. They can’t stop the criminals. Two Minneapolis police officers are on paid leave for allegedly decorating a Christmas tree at the 4th precinct with a bunch of items that are viewed as racist. [David Brown, fmr. And when, in the wake of that shooting, the Minneapolis Mayor banned officers from participating in warrior style training, the head of the police union there, Bob Kroll announced plans to defy that decision. But look, sadly, history isn’t always fun, weird mummy ventriloquy. As usual, Sunny Hostin is very right, and Meghan McCain is very “there.” Because, while Washington did promise to free his slaves in his will, it specified they wouldn’t gain their freedom until his wife’s death. And listen, I’m no “comptroller”—believe me, I wish I were, a hard-to-explain, lethally boring elected accountant, whose title inexplicably took a real word and then stuck and in the middle of it—come on, that’s my dream jump. And it’s hard to take that glib dismissal from anyone, let alone someone who looks like a boiled mr. [Sunny Hostin] He actually spent the last year of his life —. Earlier this year, one historian flagged a pretty remarkable euphemism in a current Texas schoolbook: [CBS This Morning] This is a picture, and the caption says, “some U.S. settlers brought slaves to Texas to help work the fields and do chores.” And, you know, I don’t — I don’t think we should describe slave labor as chores. And sure, you think you can grow your mustache into your beard — try it, you fucking can’t. The red summer of 1919. Directed by Christopher Werner. Season 7 Episode 20 Frank. And the truth is, with so many people misunderstanding our history, either by accident or very much on purpose, we thought tonight it might be worth talking about how the history of race in America is currently taught in schools — what the gaps are, why they’re there, and how we can fill them. Set your price for a slave. O n Sunday night’s episode of Last Week Tonight, John Oliver returned to one of his favorite topics: The criminal justice system in the United … Now you’re talking about cutting taxes, and all these things you’re talking about are totally economic things, and a byproduct of them is, blacks get hurt worse than whites. And bad hamburgers regularly killing people on the street would mean that we’ve maybe all consider going fucking vegan. Your email address will not be published. Just listen to this guy from Tulsa explaining how he felt when he finally found out about that 1921 massacre where he lived. And that’s just one of hundreds and hundreds of videos. So people who read them and may have been shaped by their content are now in their 50s, doing things like running businesses or holding elected office. But the moments on either side of those landmark eras complicate the hell out of that arc, because they were filled with white hostility and ugly backsliding. Here he is spelling out the whole game in 1981 — and I’m going to warn you, you’re about to hear the n-word a lot. Welcome to the show. Now, one good way to attempt to get reforms passed a unions resistance, is if the federal government steps in—which actually can. And the declaration and the constitution, of course, they’re racist. [Bob Kroll] If they deem that this training is in violation and they’re on their own time and they want to attend it, I’m gonna encourage officers to do it. One of our most famous tourist attractions is a castle where we executed people for centuries and have now filled with stolen jewels, like the Koh-i-Noor diamond — which, according to the tower’s website, was “presented to Queen Victoria.” And that verb is doing a lot of heavy lifting there. The half-hour-long show premiered on Sunday, April 27, 2014, and is hosted by comedian John Oliver. No one is suggesting playing that Lee Atwater tape to third-graders. [Bill Clinton] We need to finish the job of putting a hundred thousand more police on our streets. It has the power to investigate police departments for a pattern of civil rights violations and enter what is called “a consent decree,” in which the police department agrees to make institutional changes that are then overseen by a federal court. That feels — [applause] that feels pretty easy. But it’s actually worth taking a moment to talk about that term. But that impulse — to downplay the horrors of slavery — has marked how schoolchildren have learned about it ever since. You are a disgrace. They can’t effectively do their job. And besides that being morally reprehensible, it is a tool that most labor unions simply don’t have at their disposal. Virginia Woof. Too often, u.s. History is reduced down to, “there was slavery, then there was a civil war, then there wasn’t slavery anymore, then there was a civil rights movement, then there wasn’t racism anymore.” Just a smooth, steady upward arc. Layton and Miss Audrey make a risky play for Big Alice, but Wilford has his own plans. President Trump walked from the White House, crossed Lafayette Square, and stood in front of St. John’s Church holding a Bible moments after telling reporters he would deploy the military if state officials could not contain protests across the nation. In a nutshell: Gaza–horrific; Ebola spreading; and Syria, to be honest, it’s barely being reported on, but let’s assume it’s still fucking awful. [] A slavery-themed monopoly-like game students played in elementary school. That’s our show, thanks for watching. One organization, called the United Daughters of the Confederacy, campaigned for schools to adopt textbooks that would “accord full justice to the south,” telling librarians to write “unjust to the South” on the ones that didn’t. Now, the good news is there is a chance that the Supreme Court will soon decide to reconsider “qualified immunity.” There’s actually a bill in Congress right now to abolish it, although, even if it passes, it may have to wait for a new president to sign it, and we may not get one of those, anywhere from the next four years to never. But the fact is, the incremental reforms that we’ve tried, like the wider use of body cameras and implicit bias and use of force training, are not on their own going to cut it. And obviously, you’d need to calibrate this to each age group. Basically, the night that episode aired, many white Americans went, “holy shit! Yooo so the great @Jhanna just uploaded a bunch of transcripts from Last Week Tonight to the site. Only to have to almost immediately walk that statement back saying that there was a process that they were required to go through by law. All rights reserved. I yield my time, FUCK YOU!”, If the president is taking notes, that is what a perfect call looks like. Police officers are often protective in consequences due to something called “qualified immunity,” which sounds like something you get from a horrifying cheatcode in Grand Theft Auto—”Well, guess what, I turned on qualified immunity and now my car runs on prostitutes.”. Even in cities where the mayor and police chief say all the right things, it’s important to know that the union can stop whatever they are proposing dead in its tracks. Because on Wednesday, yet another member of congress tested positive. I’m sorry to say that we have to tell our police officers “take it a step slower.”. Good night. The officer who shot Philando Castile had taken a class based on Grossman’s theories. The method the officer used to assault that woman clearly shouldn’t matter. [Damario Solomon-Simmons, Civil Rights Attorney] When I went to OU in 1998, I was sitting in a class of African-American history. In fact, remember Bob Kroll? In New York Bill de Blasio has balked at making it illegal for police to use choke holds, despite the fact that a chokehold is precisely what led to the death of Eric Garner. In Minneapolis, where George Floyd was murdered, police use force against black people at seven times the rate of whites. And then there was this case: [Kiro 7 News] A federal appeals court has ruled Seattle police used excessive force when they tasered a pregnant woman during a traffic stop in 2004. U.S. History: Last Week Tonight With John Oliver – Transcript. [Steve Guttenberg] Let’s see. Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. It’s about a structure built on systemic racism that this country created intentionally and now needs to dismantle intentionally, and replace it with one that takes into account the needs of the people that it actually serves. The KKK was founded, 2,000 black people were lynched, and by 1877, the south had regained local control. Because one hamburger should mean a health inspection a few bad hamburgers might mean that McDonald’s getting shut down. He is someone who’s very much part of american history, and he knew the importance of drawing a line from the past through the present. Look, it’s pretty clear we need to upgrade the way we teach our history. And it definitely doesn’t mean that kids shouldn’t learn about it. What kind of person would honor a friend’s legacy by continuing to advocate for voting rights? Yes, we all want, and in many cases, need, to blow off some steam, but this is no time for anyone to be vying for induction into the knucklehead hall of fame. There was an 11 percent drop in felony arrests and 18 percent drop in misdemeanor arrests, and a 32 percent drop in moving violations.
